Small Boat Tour of Honey Island Swamp

Venture along the Pearl River and deep into the Honey Island Swamp to explore some of the most secluded swamplands in all of Southern Louisiana. An undisturbed ecosystem where gators are not normally fed by tour companies, this 2-hour ecotour is one that guests will not soon forget. Glide around wide river bends, scope gators and cranes, and admire scenic passages lined with cypress trees and Spanish moss. An entertaining guide will feed guests' thirst for knowledge with fun facts about wildlife, pirates that smuggled treasure through the swamp, as well as notes about the life on the bayou.

Even more than we'd hoped for!
about 10 months ago
We couldn't wait to go with a naturalist in a small group swamp tour, and the trip was even better than we'd hoped for. Our captain and naturalist were really nice and knew so much about the swamp, its vegetation and living creatures. Because they're on the water every day, they're attuned to small things that we would never have picked out on our own--the growth of the baby bald eagle! the posture of the alligators ["don't mess with us"]! and the incredible cypress trees and how they develop the soil. Fabulous trip!
